A note from the Steinway

Pascal playing the Steinway yesterday

The Olveston Steinway was quite happy to be the subject of a poem.  After several failed attempts I gave up and acknowledged the Steinway was right all along. It had to be a rhyming poem.  So in honor of the drawing-room Steinway……..

A note from the Steinway

I want to

lock away my keys
tell them not today please

say I’m out of tune
unless it’s Claire de Lune

answer the can can chant
with no you can’t can’t can’t

make ragtime out of bounds
I’ll not entertain those sounds

absolutely refuse chopsticks
say kindling’s not in my mix

insist they lay off my pedal
Steinways aren’t made for heavy metal

say this firmly without a quaver
one day when I’m feeling braver
